  1. iPad Pulpit

    Here's an interesting project. This is a pulpit (podium) for iPad. It's made of reclaimed American Chestnut barn wood, steel, aluminum, and calf skin leather. The chestnut came from a barn we call our "Chestnut Barn" that we tore down in Pennsylvania. The patina on the surface was so nice and...
  2. Pulpit - November 2012

    Pulpit I built for my church. Delivered at 6:00 AM the morning of the dedication service for the newly built sanctuary. Oak and oak ply with three coats of Homer Formby high gloss tung oil.
  3. Movable oak pulpit

    I was asked by an employee of our local nursing home where I volunteer to design and build a pulpit to replace one that had been built many years earlier out of paneling and plywood. They wanted something of a similar size and function to the old one so I based my design roughly on its...
  4. Finally Pulpit!

    I have been working on this project for waaaaaay too long! Fortunatley the church wasn't waiting to have a pulpit until this one was done. :) I am pleased to say that it is finished and ready to be taken to the church. It is funny how picky I can be about my work when I know that people other...
  5. Adjustable Height Pulpit with locking gas cylinder

    New adjustable height podium for our church. It uses a Bansbach locking gas cylinder to raise it. The cross design was from Jeremy Schrock. The ends of the columns were segmented oak strips that I turned, then split in half. The upper column rises in a maple sliding dovetail track and there...
  6. Kids Worship Pulpit, Alter and Font.

    I am good friends with one of the pastors at our church (golf buddies) and he commissioned me to help with a brainchild project of his. He wanted to give the preschool and young Sunday School classes something to learn about worship with. We made replicas of the Pulpit, Font and Alter that are...
  7. Pens - some of my son's work

    Follow this link to see a brief flash gallery of some of my 14 year olds work. He designed and made the pen holder you see in the picture also. http://www.dspens.com/ The three shown are from left to right Bocote, Unspecified burl, Apple. The apple is actually from a tree my Great Grandfather...
  8. Church pulpit & communion table

    These were the 1st & 2nd projects I did for my church ("Celtic Cross" being the 3rd & "Hammer Beams" being 4th). The pulpit was delivered Easter Sunday 2006 & the communion table about 90 days later. Both are made of red oak & red oak ply. The leading edge molding is 1/4" above countertop to...
  9. Pine Podium

    This past summer (2014), my church had a fire that wiped out everything. The acrylic podium that we had is a melted heap of plastic. Now in our new digs, we were in need of a new podium. So I volunteered to build one. Since I work mainly in pine, that is what I used. We have people of...
  10. Pulpit and Communion Table

    I am the pastor of a small church that I started just a few years ago, and I enjoy doing some woodworking on the side as a hobby. I decided to build a pulpit and communion table for our church. There was a lot of planning that went into the design. I wanted a nice big surface to be able to...
  11. Pulpit

    Sorry about the poor quality pics as I had to snap a picture of this before it left today, this is the one I blogged about in my blog entry first fruits. It is for a small church that is starting up and possibly bringing more work this week,, it is made from 3/4 birch plywood and the cross from...
  12. Church Pulpit and Lectern

    Our little Methodist church was originally built in 1857 and was in need of a total renovation. Included in the renovation was a need for a new pulpit and lectern. But the goal was to also make it more modern and facilitate more contemporary services, etc. The design had to have some old...
  13. Pulpit gift

    A local church was broken into and robbed of most of its furniture. So wife asked if I could build one. I get to do only a couple products a year. This one is one I am proud to have finished in a a mere day and a half. Walnut and oak ply construction. First use of pocket holes they are...
  14. Refurbished Walnut and Oak Pulpit from 1879

    I pastor a church that is 214 years old, and we still have the pulpit from a previous sanctuary that was on the property that dates from 1879. It was made of walnut, but had been covered with some horrible reddish opaque stain back in the 1920's. So, a congregant and I decided to refurbish it...
  15. Lectern...finally done!

    Well, the lectern is finally done, my friends! After about 3 months of part-time work, this one's in the can. No plans, just some loose measurements based on my Bryce rendering: I think it came out pretty close. The book riser you see is removable; I thought maybe the pastor might want to...
  16. Pulpit

    Had the opportunity to build a Pulpit for a small community church. Labor Gratis. Cherry is the wood and the crosses are of dogwood. This is my first all solid wood, woodworking project. I have learned a lot thru this project.
  17. Pulpit

    I ran across a sawmill one day in my driving around and I stopped to talk to the owner. I took him a couple of handmade pens and asked him to keep his eyes out for any strange or unique woods. I would stop by and see him every few days and shoot the breeze. In the back of my mind was a thought...
  18. Pulpit

    This pulpit was a result of some past work. This pastor saw a steeple I made which looked like the Ark of the Covenant from the Old Testement. He asked me to design and build a pulpit for his new church.
  19. Last Lectern

    This is the final gift for our final Vicar. We will no longer be involved with training of student pastors, so this was a bitter sweet build. I only had a little over a month to design and build this one, as this spring, I had to create a lectern for our Pastor of 16 years who moved on...
  20. Woodworking Skill Share
    I did my largest - and perhaps most gratifying - piece as a commission for the pastor of a small church. It was a mission style pulpit. You can see it in my projects list. I thought some of you might want the back story on it - complete with pictures and comments, from conception to delivery -...
